Clinical trials and benefits?

zaman.2756

Hi all. I need money badly and am finding it very hard to manage,this
is mostly because I'm disabled and can't work.
There are some pharmaceutical companies who give money for either
having drugs tested on you, Or else just being a stand-by in case the
actual volunteers withdraw from the study (being a stand-by gives much
less money). I'm receiving income support and DLA, if i do this
clinical trial will I stop receiving benefits? I have spent many hours
researching the web for an answerr to this question and can't find one
and so am very confused. Thanks all.

It won't affect your DLA as this is paid because you have a disability
and need help in relation to personal care or mobility - it is paid
regardless of your income.

The rules are complex, so I won't go into them, but the simple answer
is yes, your Income Support will be affected if you notify the DWP
that you are receiving other income.

Haven't you asked this question before, on several occasions? You posted
virtually the same question under the same user name in November 2007
in a thread titled "Benefit Fraud Advice Needed". You were given quite a
lot of advice then so I'm not sure how you've had to spend many hours
researching the web and not finding an answer when you received one
then. You even joined in the discussion then so it's not even as if you
posted once and then didn't return to the thread.

I advised you to contact the CAB as you are obviously having problems
managing on your current income. I know you have serious health problems
but just repeating the same posts every few months isn't going to help
you. You need to concentrate on looking at your income and outgoings.
Wanting to test drugs isn't going to be something that will come to
fruition - I told you back then - you are obviously going round in
circles and need to look at your lifestyle, which appears to be pretty
shambolic.

I'm not trying to sound harsh, but you keep avoiding the real issues by
keep wishing for things which are never going to happen (eg drugs
testing, you were going to move to France, but wanted to know if it
would affect your Income Support, you were going to be a sperm donor.
All pie in the sky things).

Good luck though, but go and see someone to sort out your debts and that
will be more helpful than offering to be a guinea pig for testing drugs.
